De Aar Grid Connected 10 MW Solar Park, South Africa

South African Large Scale Grid Connected Solar Park Programme

De Aar Grid Connected 10 MW Solar Park, South Africa

Sector: Renewable energy
Project type:  Solar energy

Client: Mulilo Renewable energy

The project envisages the construction and operation of a solar park with the rated capacity of 10 MW. The solar park will be equipped with several arrays of photovoltaic (PV) panels. Produced electricity will be supplied to the Eskom electricity network. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from electricity generation for the solar park amount to zero. The reduction of GHG emissions as a result of the project implementation will be achieved due to reduction of CO2 emissions from combustion of fossil fuel at the existing grid-connected power plants and plants which would likely be built in the absence of the project activity.

First solar electrical project registered in South Africa under CDM.

The first crediting period of the project is 01/10/2013 – 30/09/2020.

Total estimated GHG emission reduction over the first 7-year crediting period is 126 806 tCO2e.
